40-150mm f/4-5.6 is the best lens you can buy for $100. Tack sharp and well controlled to 70mm and decent all the way to 150mm.

Yup, best deal in the format I think. I leave this lens on my camera most of the time when I'm outside on sunny days and keep a pancake lens in my pocket if I need a wider length.

The 45mm f/1.8 also strikes me as a pretty good deal. That's an extremely well-regarded portrait prime.

Are these lenses (Olympus Lenses) 100% compatible with Panasonic Micro 4/3 Cameras? Example Camera: GX85

Yes. All micro-4/3 lenses are compatible with all micro-4/3 cameras. GX85 is a micro-4/3 camera.

Overall these are fairly decent prices. The markups are exaggerated (e.g., the 75-300 II was selling for $499 before the sale at major websites such as B&H, so it's only discounted by $50). However, it's still a good price because used/refurbished 75-300mm II lenses sell for $300 to $350 from resellers. International brand-new 75-300mm II lenses (i.e., grey market) sell for $340 on ebay. If you buy the ones listed in this sale using a credit card with purchase protection and extended warranty, you'll get a 2 year warranty whereas the grey market lenses there's no warranty at all (and Olympus USA may refuse to repair them).

They are compatible, just keep in mind that Panasonic lenses often have stabilization built into the lenses, while Olympus usually does not since all of their cameras have in body stabilization. My hands aren't steady enough to use a long telephoto without stabilization unless it's a sunny day outside.

The GX85 has built in stabilization so he can use any Olympus lens he wants and it will be stabilized.
All modern Panasonic m43 cameras since the gx8 with the exception of the small gx850 series have IBIS (in body image stabilization)

Yes and Not exactly .
Olympus M43 lens does not have O.I.S built-in vs. Panasonic has O.I.S in the lens not in the body.
So, use Olympus lens in Panasonic, you will lose O.I.S function.

actually you are basing your knowledge on several years old knowledge on Panasonic cameras.
The GX85 has built in stabilization so he can use any Olympus lens he wants and it will be stabilized.

So, you don't understand the words "Not exactly"

You clearly didn't read my comment otherwise you wouldn't have a valid reason to reply. Your contentious comment does nothing to promote or validate your argument but all it does is sidetrack the issue at hand, which you are spreading false information by the way. You simply don't know what you're talking about. You claim he will lose stabilization by using an Olympus lens which is simply not true for his particular Panasonic camera which you would have known had you simply read the comment or done some research rather than be contentious.
